The right of use consists in the right to the productive or personal use of an object for the satisfaction of one’s needs and interests, depending on the nature of the object, for example, use of property or receipt of income from an object.

Legal use may be protected from infringement by various legal means, in particular, by bringing a suit for the elimination of impediments to use.
